READING, Pa., May 23, 2012— Just in time for the busiest moving weekend of the year and the start of moving season, Penske Truck Rental and self-storage startup SpareFoot are teaming up to bring do-it-yourself moving and storage into the 21st century.
Welcome back to the self-storage blog reality series that will change the game forever. From the people who didn’t bring you Storage Wars or Auction Hunters comes a new mixed-media series, chronicling the adventures of 18 Internet start-up nerds on a quest to master their own product. It works like this: Duos of SpareFoot employees move a pile of weird, disturbing and occasionally hazardous items from one storage facility to the next around Austin. Each team adds their own stuff to the pile along the way, and everyone gets to experience self-storage and figure out how our site can make it easier for future customers. Boom.
SpareFoot is the world's largest online marketplace for consumers to find and reserve self-storage units, with comparison shopping tools that show real-time availability and exclusive deals. This fun tech startup is headquartered in Austin, TX.
